Gaia Roots Workshop and Performance at The Garage, Pittsfield , Nov. 28 [Berkshire on Stage]
Gaia Roots World Music and Dance Ensemble is an all-female performance troupe that blends drumming, dance, vocal harmonies and story into a unique weave of traditional music and original creations. They draw inspiration from the roots music of West Africa, the Caribbean and many other traditions from around the world.
An hour before the performance, join members of Gaia Roots in learning folkloric drum and percussion rhythms on traditional instruments; learn to accompany songs and dances from West Africa and the Caribbean. Clinic participants will be invited to perform the material they’ve learned in the show, so it will be an evening where the music comes full circle.
